Blessings abound & a weekend of Another Rainy Day in Georgia




It has been raining "cats & dogs"! (I wonder where that phrase came from? ) You may have already heard the news. The schools have been canceled for Monday & Tuesday because of the flooding. We have had showers, drizzle, and honest to goodness rain & lightening storms. But in my home I have had "showers of blessings"! On Saturday the mail lady brought me a wonderful gift wrapped in a secure plastic bag. I was so excited that I ripped it open just like Christmas mornings! Look at all of the the wonderful goodies that were in the box. It was stuffed beyond bulging. Then I found out that it could not all fit in that box and another arrived on Monday morning!!!! What a blessing from above! Carole of California sent me a box of fru-fru's to use on the Journals of Love for cancer patients. Carole, thank you, dear dear lady, for listening to my heart and sending a much needed supply of encouragements!!!
My hubby and I live entirely on Social Security and I would not to be able to continue making the Journals of Love without the Lord supplying the need. Then I received two emails from ladies wanting to contribute toward this cause. My pride wanted to say: "No, send it to someone who will really need it" but I knew in my heart that the Lord was supplying when we could not any longer make the lovely journals.
Look at all of the inspiration that has been so generously given! There are papers, pens, glitters, laces, pictures, letters, it goes on and on. I have received my Christmas gifts in September and I am a happy camper!!
Thank you, Carole, for the love gifts! I am so humbled and moved that someone so far away has touched my heart so deeply. Please accept this "virtual hug" from the bottom of my heart. I KNOW that the Lord will return this blessing to you ten fold...

Good Morning Sharon:
I am so excited that you received the boxes so quickly. I am so happy that sharing with you will make some ladies very happy with the lovely journals you create.
I got goose bumps and am so glad you and I got to "meet" one another; all because we both like to share : )
I am e-mailing you right now.
Take care Dear Lady
Sincerely
carole

sharon, you really have a special angel in your life! she sent you soooo much in supplies that i couldn't figure it out until i read the text. i thought maybe you were cleaning up/reorganizing your studio! SO MUCH. God is so good!

and, though i've not seen one of the journals you make for cancer patients, i will state that you are an angel, also. One of God's workers.

keep up the good work, sharon.
you are blessing so many.
